No retreat no surrender
9 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

The last movie by Alexandre Astruc,who was only to make MTV works afterward ,it has nothing to do with camera pen style,his former style,even to the smallest extent;it's an impersonal movie.The first part is rather dull,handicapped by a pointless female part (played by ex-James Bond girl Claudine Auger,who seems to think "I wish I could be somewhere else".

In April 1941,Germany invaded Yugoslavia without a declaration of war;aboard a destroyer ,opinions differ:shall we surrender or shall we join the British fleet in Malta?Two young lieutenants would like to continue the war,but their superior is a coward and it's a capitulation ."You should salute your new flag" he is ironically told as he is leaving the ship.In this second part,the movie takes off,thanks to convincing Gerard Barray.

Spoiler: the two lieutenants sacrifice their lives and serve as an example to their men : they will become resistant fighters.
